Peggy is hosting today’s challenge, Wet or Dry Embossing
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Wet or Dry Embossing theme.
My card was made using my favourite 6 x 6 base card. I used THAT* embossing folder to emboss some black card as the base layer. I used some gilding wax to bring out the highlights of the embossed area, concentrating on the pattern above the wavy border.
Using dies from my stash I cut out the sentiment base in mirri card, the sentiment topper in cream card onto which I stamped the sentiment. The 60 was die cut from the mirri card.
I cut out some swirls from the mirri card to put behind the decorative gold base card, and the top layer was cut out of black. Onto the black card I stamped and heat embossed in gold some Dreamees flowers, which I then fussy cut and stuck onto the black and gold decorative base. I stuck some pearls in the centre of the flowers.
Finally, I stuck some black gems in the centre of the wavy border going across the centre of the card.
* THAT embossing folder was originally given free with a magazine, and that was the only issue of that magazine I didn’t get! I eventually bought it – begrudging every penny! But it is a lovely embossing folder…
